If a Japanese author wanted to scare the crap out of you, they’d go right to the source – THE TOILET! Yep, the land of the rising sun doesn’t have their dark entities lurking in ordinary places like closets, under the bed or the creaky attic. Nope, most older Japanese superstitions/urban legends deal with a mean spirit living in the toilet. This evil force (in form on a hairy hand) will apparently grab the ankles of naughty Japanese kids going potty. Now THE RING author Koji Suzuki has taken it one step further. His newest 9 chapter novella THE DROP is not only about the bathroom, but it's also written entirely on toilet paper. Each roll costs about 210 yen ($2.20). No word on how much the 2ply will go for.
